    Depends on the contest-top three in some-flat fee for other submissions, but no one makes much money! My ghost story was for a contest, but he just said it was in the issue, not that it won or anything-sometimes he forgets to include me in the contests LOL-since we have other projects we are working on together. I'm not looking to get rich by selling stories, just get my name out so people will buy my anthology

    Gratz by the way! Forgot to say that. Ya, that is the same reason I do the online serial novel. I am hoping someone likes it enough to buy my book while they are there. It has panned out a couple of times. Plus, you can always package up a serial novel at the end and sell it as well.

    I read some of your novel, Ozmosis. You do a good job, my friend.

    On the brighter side of things, I have been very hard at work today and am nearing the home stretch of my 1st revision edits of that book. You have to really keep yourself from rushing when you get to the end of these things LOL.

After about a month though I will pull them off the public forums, and file them away. This way if we do decide to do something with the runners up later on, we have the stories as a reference point to then come back to authors and make an offer on them. No promises, but that's what the general plan is for after the contest is over.
    So what happens if, say, we make it to the final round and don't win one of the three spots, but we sell it to some other market or antho afterwards? Should we let you know about it? Would you still keep it on file after that, or would it be discarded? Just curious.

    We would probably still keep it on file. Depending on your contract with who you sell it to, you may be able to sell it again. Authors sell "re-prints" all the time. Obviously if you wanted us to discard it, we would be more than happy to.

    Not self-promotion of your work though. I think this one would fit better in the Book Market sub-forum.
